    Hey fellow mopar enthusiast, I have a dumb question concerning my 69 Plymouth Satellite. I know this is a forum for 71-74 mopar, but I am posting here because the motor in my satellite is from a 72 mopar of some sort (don't know where maybe truck).
    It's a 360 and I just installed back into car after rebuilding. I took pics but can't find all of them. Can someone help identify where these two brackets go please.

    Just a guess here George. But the long one is it not a support that bolts onto the transmission and the block right over around the starter??

    Smaller one not for a seat is it?? Like I said George just a guess. Just came in for a bite and seen you question my man.

    Welcome to the site. Somebody else will chime in shortly with no doubt about the answer. Good luck George

    The long one is definitely a transmission to block brace. The other? Exhaust hanger?

      Thank you Mike, I'm looking through the book now and at the transmission and block to see where it attaches, I don't see a place for it though. I'll keep looking, I have to be missing something. Thanks for the input.

      I believe the short one is part of an A/C compressor bracket.

        I think the long one goes block to transmission on the passenger side...

        Thank you two for the feedback, I found where the long bracket goes, and you were right it was definitely a block to transmission bracket, it mounts at the bottom of the bell housing to a hole on the block just above the starter.

        Now I just need to figure out that smaller bracket. It came off the motor somewhere, dad just can't remember anymore lol

        I was thinking that, the car was an original 318 with air, but it was gone before I got the car. But maybe you're correct sir.

        Thank Bad Dad, I found a spot on the driver's side from the bottom of the bell housing to the block just above the starter
